Time Out says

Recycle your wilting holiday trees at the city's annual Mulchfest event.

Mulchfest—the city's solution to wilting holiday trees—is back!

Now through January 9, New Yorkers get to drop off their their trees at 74 different drop-off sites across the five boroughs, where the plants will then be chipped and recycled.

This weekend only, folks can also actively mulch their posessions during Chipping Weekend and bring a bag of mulch home. We can't think of a better way to dispose of our beloved trees.

Mulchfest has been going on for two decades, organized by the NYC Parks Commission and the city's Department of Sanitation. For over 20 years, the two entities have collected and mulched trees to help plant beds and community gardens all around the city. As usual, we're proud of our city.

You can find a drop-off location near you right here.
